The compact home cinema projector will start shipping this week.
LG has announced the launch of its HU80K CineBeam 4K Laser Projector. The is set to start hitting select retailers this week for an MSRP of $3,000.
"The LG CineBeam 4K Laser Projector is a true game changer in the projector market,” said Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "Portability and versatility combined with 4K technology delivers the ultimate large-screen home cinema experience in a compact size. This projector will lead the way in changing how consumers view 4K content in any room at home."
The new compact projector was designed with quality 4K performance and portability in mind, allowing users to bring their UHD entertainment to any room in the house. The device can project a 150-inch image with 2,500 lumens of brightness and uses a mirrorless I-shaped engine. This helps to enable the projector's compact form factor and upright design, allowing the unit to display images whether it's placed on the floor, wall-mounted, or hanging from the ceiling. In addition, the HU80K also supports high dynamic range content using the HDR10 format.
Two 7W speakers are included as well, but users can opt to connect external speakers or a sound bar through the projector's optical output, HDMI port, or Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Meanwhile, LG has also integrated its webOS 3.5 smart TV interface, offering access to several streaming services. Installation has been made flexible as well thanks to the projector's carrying handle and Auto Cord feature.
The HU80K CineBeam 4K Laser Projector is a recipient of Red Dot’s "Best of the Best Product Design Award" and previously earned a "Best of Innovation Award" at CES 2018.
